But I don't feel comfortable not having an updated pair of glasses on hand, even though I prefer to wear contacts daily, so I also selected some supercute frames and asked that they contain transitions lenses when the set is made. Too bad you'll never see the frames on me, they really are cute...$309 cute. With everything all added up, the entire visit ended up costing me $581, which at first glance (aha, there's that humor again) seems outrageous, but divided out over the life of the items (3 years minimum is what I go for on glasses), that's a mere $16.14/month. And I'll just keep getting new contacts each year at no cost. It's when I have to get both the contacts and the glasses in the same year that it costs an arm and a leg.
Oh, and I bought some fruit at the grocery store after all this, which is why I feel justified in naming this post as I did. So there. Also, I like alliteration. Alliteration with vowels is also called assonance, if I remember correctly from high school English. Tee-hee, indeed. Oh, but this was not assonance, it was consonance, aka alliteration. And the annoying repetition of a repeating repeatable word. How redundant can I be?
